Happy Women’s Month! March is a special time of year when we come together to celebrate the achievements of women. However, it is also a time to reflect on our progress towards gender equality and the work that still needs to be done. This year’s International Women’s Day theme is “Embrace Equity”. It calls on us to recognise how gender inequality affects our society and to take action to address these issues and ensure women thrive everywhere. At CSR-in- Action, we #EmbraceEquity and as we celebrate this special month, we reaffirm our dedication to advancing gender fairness and encouraging constructive transformation in a society where every person has an equal chance to achieve success.
